In January 2012, Daniel J. Evers joined the Litigation Department at Berkman, Henoch, Peterson, Peddy & Fenchel, P.C. Daniel represents corporate and municipal clients in both federal and state courts in claims involving Municipal Liability under Section 1983, Civil Rights, Torts, Americans with Disabilities Act, Breach of Contract, Article 78 Petitions, Zoning Appeals, and RLUIPA.
Prior to joining Berkman Henoch, Daniel was the owner of two small businesses and concentrated his career in business management, operations management, and sales. After graduating from Hofstra University in May 2001 with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management, Daniel sought real world experience to develop these business skills and decided to put his legal studies on hold. After several years of honing his management and sales skills, Daniel decided to follow his legal dreams and enrolled in Touro Law School in Fall 2007 at the age of thirty-three. After four years of working full-time, owning a small business, attending law school in the evenings, and becoming the New York State Constitutional Editor of the Touro Law Review, Daniel graduated from Touro Law School, in May 2011, summa cum laude as the Valedictorian of the Evening Division.
Daniel joined the firm shortly after graduation and has become an asset to this firm and its clients through his real world experience, drive to succeed, enhanced research and writing skills, ardent advocation of his client’s interests, and vigorous protection of his client’s assets.
Daniel is admitted in New York State and the Eastern District of New York. He is a member of the Nassau County Bar Association, New York Bar Association, and the American Bar Association.
